For the first time, the coronavirus has been detected in Norway. A person who has been to China has tested positive for the virus.
However, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health considers it very unlikely that the person poses an infection risk.
– “The person was tested after coming home from China this weekend. The person is now at home in quarantine and is now healthy,” says Department Director Line Vold in FHI.
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health held an urgent press conference in Oslo on Wednesday evening.
By Tuesday, 100 samples from Norwegians had been taken for the covid-19 virus without the virus being detected.
